So often we worry about the outcome of the journey instead of living the journey each step at a time. Goals give our lives direction, but the steps we take in order to reach our goals is where the true personal growth appears. The goal is the end result of all the positive steps one must take to get there. I want to encourage you to appreciate the process in reaching your goal instead of only the completion. Too often we are already focused on the next goal before our first one is even reached. Every moment of every step of the way can offer insight if one just pays attention.
I recently had a coaching session with one of my dear clients that discovered the steps taken along his journey had been a gift. As his coach, I could see the points in which change and transformation occurred and even offered a u-turn in his life. A new attitude was formed and it created a ripple effect to all those he encountered. It’s like watching a rock skip on water. If you don’t appreciate each skip along the way and follow the journey closely, then you will lose sight of it’s destination. Once that happens, you won’t be able to appreciate the beautiful ripple of great energy that it creates in the end.
